When I first picked up my VXR I started how most other people do with them and bolted on a load of performance mods first up was and custom 3″ turbo back full decat exhaust to get that VXR sound everyone loves.
Most people think of their car only as something to get them from A to B, but for me, my car is another member of the family.
My dream car has always been an Audi RS5, well a Nissan GTR & Lamborghini Aventador, unfortunately, the lottery isn’t working to my favour So I settled for the Audi S5, although it wasn’t an RS5 I still made sure it had the RS5 body kit.
I’ve had a Fabia VRS for a long time now my original Fabia yellow on air ride and with a huge spec engine build courtesy of Darkside developments, the plans were huge to turn it into a full show car it was booked into for a respray with a mountain of parts awaiting to be fitted from audio to interior…
Without hesitation, I ditched the focus and I became a BMW owner! Obviously being use to driving fords it took some time getting use to not having indicators and such primitive equipment (lol)
Well having always been a Vauxhall fan most of my cars have been Vauxhalls. I have mostly had Modified Cabbys but space was always an issue. I bought a new fiesta ST3 back in Jan 2015 but to cut the story short it wasn’t for me and I sold it after 10 weeks.
I’ve always been into my Fords and I have only owned one non-Ford previously and well that lasted a couple of months. I purchased my fiesta brand new in 2011, and had an idea in my head of how I wanted the car to look before I even picked it up.
With the stance, those wide wheels, the private plate and the Orranje G-Wing rear spoiler on the back, it’s hard to believe that Tom Penny’s MINI started life as a One D, the first and possibly most basic diesel New MINI.
I’ve owned my fiesta for nearly 3 years and when bought it I decided to go for the molten orange colour to be different to the normal red blue black and white When first got the car I didn’t have a lot planned on the modification side of things
I decided that I loved the A1 so much that I would stay within the Audi brand but just upgrade to something that was a quicker and that I could have a bit more fun with. After test driving both the S3 saloon and the S1 I couldn’t really bring myself to leave my hatchback roots…
I have loved cars since I can remember and always wanted to create something I could be proud of and unique. I already had a set plan for my car before I even bought it. I had been mapping out what to do in my head until I had a perfect idea of what to do.
I have always had a think for Audi’s, guess it started with my old man that had them when I was a young boy.. do remember the 200 turbos had 3 myself being a coupe, b6 190 and this my b7.
